Junior programme lands SUEZ sponsorship

Manchester Magic and Manchester Mystics have sealed a sponsorship agreement with waste management company SUEZ for the 2021/22 season.

SUEZ recycling and recovery UK, which operates the waste and resources contracts on behalf of Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), will provide financial backing to the club’s junior programme.

“After such a challenging time over the past 18 months, the support from SUEZ is invaluable as we prepare for the new campaign,” said club CEO Phil Gordos.

“We will be fielding 17 junior teams in the NBL for 2021/22, one of the largest ever entries we’ve put together, so it’s an exciting time to be part of the Magic and Mystics family.

“We’re delighted SUEZ are on board and look forward to working with them.”

Anna Bell, Contract Director for SUEZ in Greater Manchester, added: “We are committed to supporting organisations across Greater Manchester and enabling communities, which is why we are proud to be sponsoring Manchester Magic and Manchester Mystics.

“We know how important this support is in maintaining the activity for youth teams in Manchester, and wish them luck for the season!”

Based at the Manchester Basketball Centre in Whalley Range, Magic and Mystics run one of the biggest and most successful junior programmes in the country.

Since 2000, they have won more than 50 national titles and developed dozens of junior internationals, with many more securing scholarships to play and study in the USA.
